Nature influences design of Florida cancer center

White paper discusses the ecotherapy influences on the Scully-Welsh Cancer Center

The location of the Scully-Welsh Cancer Center in Vero Beach, Fla., was dictated by the proximity of the radiation oncology pavilion at the center of the crowded Indian River Medical Center campus because patients needed convenient access and connectivity to the pavilion, according to a white paper on the Array Architects website.

The white paper discussed how ecotherapy influenced the design of the center. Ecotherapy is based on the beliefe that there is a connection between human beings and other living things that benefits physical and mental health.

Designers created a bucolic setting within the campus with a healing garden that links the cancer facility to the Health & Wellness Center.
